I am suddenly on a French trip. Skincare wise. Vichy, La Roche Posay (now both under the L’Oreal group ), Bioderma…
The Bioderma Sensibio Water is the brand’s best seller. A hit among beauty gurus, bloggers and YouTubers I’m told. I picked it up before I knew about it’s superstar status though. I was intrigued by it’s name and look. It honestly does look and feel like water.
Before we get into the review, let us see what the company itself has to say about this miracle water.
A cleansing and make-up removing water that respects the fragility of sensitive skin
- Sensitive to intolerant skin
- Combines performance and very high tolerance
- Cleanses and removes make-up from the face and eyes

- Produces a feeling of instant freshness
Product + :

BIOLOGICAL MODE OF ACTION
Sensibio H2O is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin: its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes and naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Morning and/or evening – 7 days a week
- Soak a cotton pad with Sensibio H2O.
- Gently cleanse and/or remove make-up from your face and eyes.
- Re-apply until the cotton pad becomes clean.

I have the one for sensitive skin. Here are my two cents on it.
First off, the ingredient list sounds like an IV fluid!
It does what it claims. More or less. It gets my daily grease- paint off and leaves my skin fairly clean without making it feel stretchy and dry afterwards.
But I do have a couple of grouses. It isn’t so great with water- proof make- up (though it claims to be otherwise), especially water- proof mascara. I have to keep working on them to get them off with the Sensibio H2o. And after being on dusty Bangalore roads, I feel compelled to use another cleanser/ face- wash after I use it. I like my face to feel squeaky clean after I come home from a long day at work. And this does not give me that “clean” feel. It does feel very gentle though.
The consistency (just like plain ol’ water) takes some getting used to and it also means you need more product- compared to your usual cleansers/ makeup removers.
Bangalore- Online (Amazon, Flipkart, Nyka, Purplle, StrawberryNet) and some pharmacies.
Doha- Will hunt for it and update this page!
Price- Seems to vary depending on where you purchase it from (Approx. 850 INR for 250 ml)
I am using it everyday at the moment. It has been kind to my skin, and it’s simple to use. On long work days, I might just pop some on a clean tissue and wipe the grime off my face; this is where the “no- rinse” claim comes in handy. If only they made a travel friendly, tiny bottle. Sigh!
Or, I could keep a full size one in my locker 🙂
Till next time..
